It looks like it's a tan color. Maybe Americolor warm brown or any brown a little at a time until you get it close. Try it in some left over royal icing and bc.

From what it looks like to me, I would you just a little bit of brown and a little bit of purple (very little amount).

I agree with Americolor warm brown...just a little at a time until you get the light brown shade.

I think it looks sort of golden so I would add the teeniest bit of yellow in with the brown.
